    Alberta Vita with her daughters Chiara and Lucia
    Introducing

    ANAME

    A collaboration between three members of the same family, ANAME specialises in handcrafted jewellery of the most personal kind. Alberta Vita is a well-renowned jewellery designer from Padua, an Italian city famous for its goldsmiths school (where she trained). Her daughters, Lucia and Chiara, grew up surrounded by artisans and inherited her creative nature. 

    When Alberta Vita was commissioned to create an initialed ring, she almost turned down the project because it was so different to her existing designs. But rather than give up, she turned to her daughters, who were making their own way in the design world. By combining the craftsmanship of their local area, Alberta Vita's design know-how and Lucia and Chiara's contemporary aesthetic, they made their first alphabet ring. In time, this formed the debut collection for their newly formed label, ANAME. 

    Mixing clean design with clever function (the ring only comes in one size, which you squeeze a little to find the perfect fit), it was by chance that Laura found her beloved rings. She was in Milan last year for a shoot and managed to squeeze in an hour of retail therapy (all in the name of research of course) at her favourite Milanese boutique, Wait and See, where she found the Alphabet collection. At Wardrobe ICONS we love anything monogrammed, and Laura not only snapped up her initials, but has worn her 'L' and 'F' almost every day since then. Fast-forward 12 months and we are thrilled that ANAME is now a Future ICON.

    5 questions with

    Lucia & Chiara Ferraro

    What’s your favourite shopping destination in Padua?

    “Padua is a very small town, but we love Al Duca d’Aosta, Primapagina, Ivo Milan and of course our ANAME HQ and our mum’s jewellery store. If there was a Barneys in Padua, that’s what we would choose as the answer!”

    What are your favourite eating spots in Padua?

    “Every single place in Padua is pretty amazing, but out here the smaller the place, the better the food! If we had to choose though, we would probably say Da Dante alle Piazze. Or else our grandma’s home: every grandma is a queen chef out here!” 

    What’s your favourite holiday destination in Italy?

    “If we had to have short vacation in Italy right now, we can totally picture ourselves sipping champagne by the water of Isola di Pantelleria in Sicily.”

    What’s your favourite word to spell out with the rings?

    “What’s better than the word L-O-V-E? We also love combinations like O-K, because that can be switched to K-O. As well as N-O/O-N or M-O-M/W-O-W.”

    Who are your ICONS?

    “David Bowie, Mina, Sailor Moon, Salvador Dali and anyone who’s a young, brave contemporary artist.”
